Who We Are

We are Schlumberger

Our story begins with what it truly means to be a technology innovator. Our common sense of purpose unites 105,000 people representing 140 nationalities with products, sales and services in more than 120 countries. We are the world’s leading provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing to a global energy industry.

As energy powers society's progress, our innovations accelerate this progress.

We believe energy makes society progress, so we find ways to help our customers fuel agriculture, industry, medicine, science, space, technology, and transportation. Few parts of modern life, if any, are untouched by the raw materials of oil and gas. And it all starts with competent and talented teams working together to drill wells through subterranean environments they can never actually see. It takes a combination of engineering disciplines, along with computer science, geophysics, and metallurgy. Then there are astounding efforts to keep older wells pumping despite time’s inevitable drain on production. From a well’s cradle to grave, and everywhere in between—that is where the people of Schlumberger come in.

Innovation happens when visionaries dare to try

In the early decades of the 20th century, Conrad and Marcel Schlumberger set out to understand the Earth’s subsurface structure using geophysical measurements. Their pioneering spirit enabled them to grow Schlumberger into the world’s first well logging company with a worldwide presence. That technology debut has built a 90-year legacy that still thrives on industry leadership and innovation—a clearly defined identity based on dedicated people “figuring it out."

Our curiosity drives us to better understand what our customers do, how they do it, and what they need to help overcome their challenges. What’s more, we’re developing methods and processes using ever-less-invasive means minimizing environmental footprints while maximizing positive influence on the communities in which we live and work.
